Brake drums for trucks, trailers and buses
Guaranteed quality has made the brand
The DT® brand products, made of high quality materials, meet your highest quality requirements and guarantee a long period of use.
Brake drums are among the highly safety-relevant wearing parts in a vehicle and are subject to extreme mechanical and thermal stresses. They provide a friction surface for the brake pads and convert kinetic energy into heat, whereby the vehicle is braked.
Brake drums of the brand DT® Spare Parts are made of high-quality cast iron, which is characterized by outstanding thermal properties, as well as good damping properties and resistance to Deformation.
A uniform wall thickness helps to ensure an even distribution of the brake load, and is achieved thanks to a precisely controlled casting process. Precision machining of the brake track ensures the prevention of vibrations and brake judder during the braking process. Furthermore, brake drums of the brand DT® Spare Parts are cooled at a controlled temperature after casting and automatically balanced, in order to guarantee a long service life.
Brake drums may only be machined down by maximum 2 mm in the inner diameter. They should always be replaced together with the linings and always axle-wise. An upwards and downwards movement when braking can be due to a out-of-round form of the brake drum. In this case, replacement of the brake drum is recommended.
